For three decades, Henry Neave’s Statistics Tables has been the gold standard for all students taking an introductory statistical methods course as part of their wider degree in a host of disciplines including mathematics, economics, business and management, geography and psychology. The period has seen a large increase in the level of mathematics and statistics required to achieve these qualifications and Statistics Tables has helped several generations of students meet their goals. All the features of the first edition are retained including the full range of best-known standard statistical techniques, as well as some lesser-known methods that can be hard to track down elsewhere. The explanatory introductions to each section have been updated and the second edition benefits from the inclusion of a valuable and comprehensive new section on an approach to simple but powerful investigation of process data. This will help the book continue in its position as the prime statistical reference for all students of mathematics, engineering and the social sciences, and everyone who needs effective methods for analysing data.
This book, designed for students taking a basic introductory course in statistical analysis, is far more than just a book of tables. Each table is accompanied by a careful but concise explanation and useful worked examples. Requiring little mathematical background, Elementary Statistics Tables is thus not just a reference book but a positive and user-friendly teaching and learning aid. The new edition contains a new and comprehensive "teach-yourself" section on a simple but powerful approach, now well-known in parts of industry but less so in academia, to analysing and interpreting process data. This is a particularly valuable enabler to personnel who are not qualified in traditional statistical methods to actively contribute to quality-improvement projects. The second edition also includes a much-improved glossary of symbols and notation.
Within the third edition, the number of tables has been extended from 35 to 41, and several other features have been added, including worked examples of all the new tables (6) and useful formulae. New tables have been included on the basis that they are less commonly available and yet have been found to be useful in practcal work; they include Tukey's Wholly Significant Difference and a new section on Non-Parametric Tables. An American version of Control Chart limits has also been included for the US market. Worked examples of the use of new tables have been included at the end of the book.
Users of statistics in their professional lives and statistics students will welcome this concise, easy-to-use reference for basic statistics and probability. It contains all of the standardized statistical tables and formulas typically needed plus material on basic statistics topics, such as probability theory and distributions, regression, analysis of variance, nonparametric statistics, and statistical quality control. For each type of distribution the authors supply: ? definitions ? tables ? relationships with other distributions, including limiting forms ? statistical parameters, such as variance and generating functions ? a list of common problems involving the distribution Standard Probability and Statistics: Tables and Formulae also includes discussion of common statistical problems and supplies examples that show readers how to use the tables and formulae to get the solutions they need. With this handy reference, the focus can shift from rote learning and memorization to the concepts needed to use statistics efficiently and effectively.
Whether you are a statistician, engineer, or businessperson, you need statistics. You want to be able to easily reference tables, find formulas, and know how to use them so you can extract information from data without getting bogged down by advanced statistical methods. Your goal is to determine the appropriate statistical procedures and interpret the results. Standard Probability and Statistics: Tables and Formulae provides the tools you need to do just that. Logically organized and reaching far beyond a mere catalog, a textual description accompanies each entry- most include an example. The topics addressed are directly applicable to modern business and engineering as well as to statistics, including regression analysis, ANOVA, decision theory, signal processing, and control theory. The result is an accessible, example-oriented handbook that supplies the basic principles, the most commonly used values, and the information to make them work for you. It is easy to fill a statistics reference with hundreds of pages of tables - sometimes for just one test. This handbook is much more. With topics ranging from classical statistics to modern applications, Standard Probability and Statistics fills the need for an up-to-date, authoritative statistics reference.
This second edition has all the tables required for elementary statistical methods in the social, business and natural sciences.
First derived within the context of life-testing, inverse Gaussian distribution has become one of the most important and widely employed distributions, and is often used to model the lifetimes of components. It is also used as a model in many varied applications, including fatigue analysis, economic prediction analysis, and the analysis of extreme events such as rainfall and flood levels. The interesting features and properties of this distribution make it an important and realistic model in a variety of problems across numerous disciplines. Because of the broad range of applications, this handbook will be useful not only to members of the statistical community but will also appeal to applied scientists, engineers, econometricians, and anyone who desires a thorough evaluation of this important topic.
Lognormal distributions are one of the most commonly studied models in the sta tistical literature while being most frequently used in the applied literature. The lognormal distributions have been used in problems arising from such diverse fields as hydrology, biology, communication engineering, environmental science, reliability, agriculture, medical science, mechanical engineering, material science, and pharma cology. Though the lognormal distributions have been around from the beginning of this century (see Chapter 1), much of the work concerning inferential methods for the parameters of lognormal distributions has been done in the recent past. Most of these methods of inference, particUlarly those based on censored samples, involve extensive use of numerical methods to solve some nonlinear equations. Order statistics and their moments have been discussed quite extensively in the literature for many distributions. It is very well known that the moments of order statistics can be derived explicitly only in the case of a few distributions such as exponential, uniform, power function, Pareto, and logistic. In most other cases in cluding the lognormal case, they have to be numerically determined. The moments of order statistics from a specific lognormal distribution have been tabulated ear lier. However, the moments of order statistics from general lognormal distributions have not been discussed in the statistical literature until now primarily due to the extreme computational complexity in their numerical determination.
This lively collection of essays examines statistical ideas with an ironic eye for their essence and what their history can tell us for current disputes. The topics range from 17th-century medicine and the circulation of blood, to the cause of the Great Depression, to the determinations of the shape of the Earth and the speed of light.
The CRC Handbook of Tables for the Use of Order Statistics in Estimation revises and significantly expands upon the well-known Order Statistics and Their Use in Testing and Estimation (Volume 2), published in 1970. It brings together tables relating to order statistics from many important distributions and provides maximum likelihood estimations of their parameters based on complete as well as Type-II censored samples. This practical reference describes in detail the method of computation used to construct the tables and illustrates their usefulness with practical examples. The CRC Handbook of Tables for the Use of Order Statistics in Estimation is easy to use and provides information on order statistics estimation at your fingertips.
Practicing statisticians and scientists working in diverse fields need an authoritative reference handbook of statistical tables developed to "aid" in the investigation and solution of many of today's challenging problems. This book has been compiled and arranged to meet the needs of these users of statistics.
This illustrated textbook for biologists provides a refreshingly clear and authoritative introduction to the key ideas of sampling, experimental design, and statistical analysis. The author presents statistical concepts through common sense, non-mathematical explanations and diagrams. These are followed by the relevant formulae and illustrated by worked examples. The examples are drawn from all areas of biology, from biochemistry to ecology and from cell to animal biology. The book provides everything required in an introductory statistics course for biology undergraduates, and it is also useful for more specialized undergraduate courses in ecology, botany, and zoology.
